IMPORTANT INFORMATION AND EVENTS

2016 – 2017 Student Class Schedules

Schedules will be able to be viewed at 8am on Monday August 29th via the Genesis Parent Portal. Students can request schedule changes from August 29 –September 1st by emailing their counselor directly. There will be an opportunity to request a class change again once school reopens. All schedules will be final on September 14, 2016. Once we know when the schedules can be accessed, an email  will be sent out notifying you.

Freshman/New Student Orientation

Freshman and New Student Orientation will be held on Tuesday, September 6th  from 7:30am – 9:00am.  Students will receive their schedule, get their lockers, receive a tour, and meet with the principal and assistant principal. If your student receives bus transportation, buses will run.  Students that do not have bus transportation should be dropped off and picked up in the back of the building. We will meet in the auditorium. Please plan accordingly.

Senior College Planning Night

The Guidance Department is hosting Sr. College Planning Night on Tuesday, September 13th at 7pm in the RHS Auditorium. Seniors and parents are highly encouraged to attend.  You will receive important forms and information on applying to four year colleges. We will be submitting transcripts and letters of recommendations electronically again this year to college admission offices. We will be reviewing how the process will work.

Financial Aid Night

The Guidance Office is hosting a financial aid night for juniors, seniors, and their parents on Thursday, October 20th at 7pm. RHS is lucky enough to have Mr.Wil Casaine, Executive Director of  Student Financial Services at The College of New Jersey as our presenter.  As a reminder for the fall 2017, the federal government has instituted “Prior/Prior”.  Families can apply for financial aid much earlier than in the past.  The financial aid night is typically in December but due to the changes we moved it earlier so our families understand how to apply for financial aid earlier.
